The Guild has members from all walks of life both here in Australia and overseas. The Guild membership includes makers from the newest enthusiast to professionals who are recognized around the world & associate members interested in collecting hand crafted knives.
On Wednesday 8/9/10 I visited a rural property at Kilkivan in Southern QLD (about 50 km west of Gympie) to observe an Engraving School.
The difference with this school is that it is a Machine Engraving School (G.R.S Graver Max etc.) conducted by a G.R.S Instructor named Jeremiah Watt from the USA.
There were 9 students doing the course; 2 were Knife Makers and the rest were in the horse industry (custom saddles and bridles, rodeo belt buckles etc, all applied with silver and engraved).
